How it works

November 24, 2016 23:04

I have been studying the modus operandi of the Israel bashers on this website and I denote a distinct pattern.

1. One or other of the Israel bashers/haters levels a wild accusation against Israel with little or no actual evidence - an alleged letter from an arrested violent protestor complete with uncorroborated accusations against the IDF/settlers et al will do.

2. One on more of the other bashers/haters ramps up the allegation with a follow-up post, downplays even the most emphatic denials made by a supporter of Israel, and fails to check the actual details which could prove or disprove the allegation.

3. The bashers/haters either in a pack or individually further project(s) the baseless and fraudulant story in a manner consistent with a broader and false narrative of Israeli racism or villainy usually ending up with a claim of apartheid etc.

Mendacity is one word for it.
